SEA scenes have brightened up an underpass in Dalgety Bay with hundreds of residents taking up the chance to make their mark on the artwork.

The Fife Council initiative in the Moray Way North thoroughfare is being led by artists Celie Byrne and Donna Forrester, who were tasked with injecting some colour into the dull-looking area.

Primary school children from the Bay have also been able to help with some of the artwork while members of the community have been invited to get their handprints on the outside wall too.

Council community education worker Rowan Young has been delighted with the response.

"It is looking great," she said. "We have had a lot of members of the community over and have been inviting everybody to get their handprints on. There are 450 handprints on now which is great.

"In the eighties, schoolchildren were able to put their handprints on it and there have been a few visitors who have said they were on the original one so that has been nice.

"Primary sevens from Dalgety Bay and Donibristle Primary schools have been involved with the internal work, which is a sea tunnel. They have had their opportunity to put their mark on it alongside the artists.

"They have loved it and really enjoyed it. We are hoping to get finished by the end of this week."
